Versatile Blogger Award

A couple of weeks ago, Beth was kind enough to nominate me for the versatile blogger award. Thank you, Beth, for thinking of me!If you haven`t had a chance to subscribe to The Daily Atholian, you can do so here. I encourage you to take a few minutes to check out her blog. I love the creativity behind it, and her posts always make me smile.

The rules are simple:

A) Thank the person that has nominated you & include a link to their blog.
B) Nominate at least 15 blogs of your choice.
C) Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.
D) Share seven different facts about yourself.

The Seven Facts:

  1. I grew up in a city and now live outside of a small town. Some days I miss the city – Buskers, the way their music would float to your ears amongst the chaos of honking horns and running engines. Slurpee`s, real sugar filled frozen treats! DELIVERY!!! But I really like the landscape here. It is clean, quiet and spacious. I can stretch my whole mind and heart out here for miles.
  2. 70% of the time I really like to cook and try new recipes (a special thank you to all of the food blogs here) The other 30% I`d rather eat cereal.
  3. I don`t like to eat the same meal two nights in a row. All leftovers are stored in the freezer. They make quick grabs for lunch or late night suppers. Most of the time I don`t put a label on them so we have a `Mystery Meat from the Freezer` night.
  4. My cat is actually trying to type this for me. It must be the clicking of the keys that draws her. Or the fact that my hands look busy.
  5. I am an absolute photo junkie. Love taking them, love viewing them. Not great at developing them. Or editing.
  6. I am quiet, in volume.
  7. I love all animals, in all of their shapes and sizes. Bugs, not so much.

It is always hard to nominate other blogs so I am passing the torch onto any of you that would like to share a bit information about yourselves. Don`t be shy 🙂



Sunshine Blogger Award

This past week I was nominated by Afternoon of Sundries for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Have you been to her site? She is a dedicated blogger, a mother, and a teacher who is passionate about her work (and much more but you will have to visit her to find them out). Thank you lovely lady, for thinking of me!
The rules are simple, I must nominate 10 people, thank my nominator, and create
questions of my own. Her questions and my answers are below…
1.If you could channel your soul into a spirit animal, what would it be and why?
A horse.

 I would be stubborn enough to pose a challenge, gentle enough to take you for a ride and smart enough to buck you off when you piss me off.

 2.Who do you secretly stalk online?

I am not so secretly stalking a lot of bloggers right now. Does that make me a psycho or just dedicated to blogging?

 3.What is your power outfit? The get up you wear to make yourself feel confident!

Jeans, a tight-fitting tank top and these shoes.

No, they are not comfortable, but they are yellow!

What? Did you think it would be something fancy?

4.If you could make one wish consequence free, what would it be and why?

For my hubby to have his man cave. I mean his super-deluxe shop. I am not looking forward to putting in the hours to get that baby up.

5.What musical instruments are you proficient in, or wish you were proficient in?

None. I can play two songs on the harmonica and three songs on my ukulele – Riptide by Vance Joy, Prayer in C by Lily Wood (the finger picking part) and Stand by Me by Ben E. King.

6.What is your guilty pleasure TV show or movie?

WordPress is currently my guilty pleasure. I haven’t watched TV in a long time.

7.What is your favorite food?


8.What book is your favorite read and why?

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. If you have read it, you will understand why.

9.What do you do for a living?

Vet tech/manager of a busy, mixed animal practice. I love my job. My days are unpredictable. I never know what species I will encounter, what surgeries we will perform or what diagnostic tools I will utilize from day-to-day. Love it!

10.What languages do you speak?

English, English and more English. I used to know some Spanish but the language is lost now…

The blogs I stalk ( nominees) are below. The one thing they have in common – quality content! Sensational stories, heartfelt poetry, fabulous photos and, of course, some recipes to round it all off. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. ☺

10.Since I enjoyed answering this question…If you could channel your soul into an animal, what would it be and why?

Phew! El fin!

Until next time
